ARK Skincare's Top 7 Tips for Spring Skincare

The clocks have sprung forward, the weather is starting to get warmer and spring has officially begun! We are so looking forward to the longer days and some normality returning in the next few months… 

Now is the perfect time to be thinking about how you can adapt your skincare routine for the change in season. With that in mind, in this post, we share our 7 top spring skincare tips to help you keep your skin looking fresh, radiant and glowing.

1. Practice a Double Cleansing Routine

If there is one thing you should know about the team at ARK Skincare, it’s that we’re passionate about double cleansing. 

If you didn’t cleanse your skin properly, your pores may become congested which could lead to unwanted skin concerns, meaning that cleansing thoroughly is one of the most important things you can do to keep your skin clear and healthy. 

 Cleansing thoroughly also helps to create a clean surface before applying your skincare products, helping them to absorb properly into your skin.

For your first cleanse, choose an oil based cleanser. Oil cleansers are very efficient ways of removing make-up, dirt and excess sebum from the skin. Cleansing oils also prevent congestion and shine without stripping away natural oils needed for healthy balanced skin. 

Once you’ve removed make-up and grime from the surface, it’s time to clean deeper. For your second cleanse, opt for an age specific cleanser with high-quality ingredients. The second cleanse will help to ensure your skin is left thoroughly clean while the active-ingredients help to nourish your skin.

2. Wash your make up brushes

It’s time to be honest...When was the last time you cleaned your make-up brushes?

 We know it may feel like a chore, but the truth is that keeping your brushes clean is extremely important for your skin’s health. 

Overtime, make-up brushes accumulate bacteria, oil and dead skin cells. So, if you use your brushes over and over without cleaning them, you will increase the risk of spreading bacteria to your skin which can lead to skin concerns such as clogged pores, break-outs and dullness. 

Get into the habit of cleaning your brushes regularly to reduce a buildup of bacteria. Experts suggest cleaning your tools once a week. Keeping brushes clean will also keep the bristles soft and be less irritating to the skin. It also reduces the risk of contaminating your make-up products. 

3. Spring Clean Your Skincare

At this time of year many of us find it useful to have a spring clean and sort through our things - but have you tidied your skincare recently?

If you are someone with a collection of lots of different products, now may be a good time to sort through what you’re using and what you may need to get rid of. Especially during lockdown, time can often pass without us realising, so it may be time to check those expiry dates too! 

You may also like to think about cleaning where you store your skincare products. We know how grubby make-up bags and draws can get...

4. Use a clean mask with every use and make sure to wash regularly

Ideally, each time we go out, we should be using a fresh face mask every time to reduce the spread of the virus, and also spreading bacteria to our skin.

Throughout the pandemic, many have opted for reusable masks. While there are many benefits to reusables, like being more environmentally friendly and choosing our own designs, it can also mean many of us become guilty of wearing the same mask over and over without cleaning it as regularly as we should be. 

Wearing a mask is not very kind to our skin to start with. It covers our mouth and nose, trapping our breath and creates a warm, moist environment for bacteria to grow. So, not  only can re-wearing your mask make it less effective, but can also risk spreading more bacteria to your skin. 

To avoid spreading bacteria to your skin, have 3-4 reusable masks to hand so you can alternate while you wash your used ones. 


5. Don't Forget to Exfoliate

With the warmer weather on its way, it’s time to buff away winter skin and reveal a brighter and more luminous complexion.

 Have you tried ARK Skincare’s Triple Action Exfoliator

This clever formulation exfoliates the skin in three different ways with three different exfoliants: physical, fruit acid and enzymatic.  The physical exfoliant is made from bamboo particles which gently slough through dead skin and grime from the surface, leaving skin with a smooth, polished texture. 

Alpha Hydroxyl Acids from Bilberry, Sugar Cane, Sugar Maple, Orange and Lemon increase the range of cell renewal, helping to diminish scars and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The Skin Regenerating Enzyme dissolves desmosomes (adhesive proteins that can cause dead cells to build up on your skin), to release dead skin cells, fade pigmentation and improve nutrient absorption. 

Gently massage into the skin and follow the instructions depending on your age. Click here to learn more! 

6. Don’t forget to apply (and reapply) your SPF!

The warmer weather is on its way and along with the sun comes stronger UV rays, meaning it’s important to layer up your SPF to keep your skin protected. 

Time to reach for ARK Skincare’s Skin Protector SPF30 Primer. This award winning formula provides broad spectrum sun protection (from UVA and UVB rays) while Hyaluronic Acid Booster helps to smooth and hydrate skin. Apply alone as a daily moisturiser, on top of your age intelligent moisturiser for added sun protection, or as a primer before applying make-up. 

Make sure to re-apply throughout the day for maximum protection.

7. Add a Layer of Hydration 

ARK Skincare's Hydrating Serum for dry, rough skin

During the winter months, skin has been hiding under our scarfs, jumpers and cosy loungewear, but now that the warmer weather is here, skin is exposed more to the surrounding environment and therefore, prone to dryness. Make sure to apply a nourishing moisturiser and body lotion to keep your skin soft and supple. 

If you’re looking for an intense boost of hydration, try ARK Skincare’s Hydrating Serum. Cucumber extract hydrates and improves elasticity, whilst Laminaria Algae traps water molecules in the skin to prevent water loss. Perfect for those suffering from dry or rough skin. Simply apply 2-3 drops to cleansed skin, or mix into your daily moisturiser for an added layer of hydration.

We hope that you find these tips helpful in the transition into spring... Do you have any other skincare tips you’d like to share? We’d love to hear from you! Tag us at  @arkskincare.

In Need of Inspiration For Mothers Day? Here's How You Can Make It Extra Special

A vase of flowers on a breakfast tray with cereal and pastries

March is here and Mothers Day is just around the corner.

Still looking for ideas? Don’t worry! We’re here to help. In this post we share some suggestions of how you can make this mothers day extra special.

We also feature some of the products from our carefully selected gift collection and some exciting special offers to help inspire you.

*We understand that not everyone may choose to celebrate mothers day. Although this post is mothers day themed, these ideas and gifts can be perfect for anybody, whether it be your mum, friends or family members.

1. Get Creative With a Homemade Gift

If you have some spare time on your hands (which many of us do at the moment...)  and feel like giving something different a go, how about creating your own gift? There’s nothing better than receiving something homemade that someone has put thought and effort into. Perhaps you could have a go at baking her best loved treat, putting together a photo album of your favourite pictures or making your own mothers day card. (If you’re in need of some inspiration, there is lots of help on Pinterest and Instagram too!)

2. Organise a Special Lunch

A selection of sandwiches, cakes and desserts for an afternoon tea

We’re all still waiting patiently until we are able to dine out and enjoy lunch/dinner at our favourite restaurants, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make this mothers day one to remember. Why not think about bringing a special meal to her instead? Maybe you could surprise her with her favourite meal or take-away - or if you wanted something a little bit different, perhaps you could arrange an afternoon tea. There are some brilliant small businesses who have started offering delivery services. There's nothing better than a cup of tea and a piece of cake...

3. Go On a Socially-Distanced Walk Together

If you live locally to one another, perhaps you could do a door-stop delivery to give your mum her gifts or even go for a socially distanced walk. There’s nothing better than being able to see one another and catch up in person with a take-away coffee... If you're lucky, hopefully the sunshine will be out too!

4. Invite Her On a Virtual Date

If you don't live close enough to be able to see your mum in person, now is the time to make the most of technology. Record a short video message or create a montage video with your favourite pictures to take her down memory lane.

Perhaps you could even arrange a zoom date where you could both do an activity together or watch a film you both enjoy. Despite not being face-to-face, there are still plenty of ways to spend your time together...

5. Make Your Own Post-Lockdown Coupons

If you’re not able to do the things you might usually do to celebrate mothers day, how about making some IOU coupons for activities you can do together post lockdown? Maybe you could take her for coffee or lunch, go on a day trip, plan a cinema date or do some of her favourite hobbies together. It will be something nice you can both put in your diaries to look forward to later on!

6. Have a Spa Day At Home

Show your mum some TLC by setting her up with her very own spa day at home. We have a selection of thoughtful gifts we think will be perfect to spoil her with...

 If you aren't local to be able to deliver them yourself, simply enter her address at checkout and have them sent direct. There's nothing better than a surprise delivery!

    ARK Skincare's Black Friday Event - Our Top Picks

    This week is especially important for taking a look at your marketing emails because Black Friday is fast approaching! 

    During the whole of Cyber Week, ARK Skincare are offering some unbelievably generous deals with up to 30% discount off almost all of our products. If you’ve been waiting to stock up on your favourites or are in need of a Christmas present for somebody special, now is the time to take advantage!

    In this post, we ask our head office team members to share their top picks and what they will be purchasing on Black Friday. So, if you’re stuck for ideas on what to treat yourself to or buy as a gift for somebody else, hopefully we can help.

    Q: Which products will you be stocking up on during ARK Skincare’s Black Friday Sale

    Do you have a favourite product you could recommend to somebody who might be yet to try ARK? Or perhaps suggest a specific gift set from this year's collection that you think would make a great gift for somebody?

    Tamsin, ARK Skincare's CEO shares her top picks from ARK's black Friday sale

    I’ve seen amazing results from using our new Age Defy Repairing Night Treatment this year. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone aged 50 or over. My skin is calmer, and clearer, and looks brighter in the mornings. I really do think it helps to keep my Rosacea under control.

    I was thrilled when the lovely Harriet at Spacemasks agreed to partner with us to create a sleep set, and our Age Defy Beauty Sleep Collection is my top gift recommendation for this year. Who doesn’t want the gift of sleep?! It is perfect for anyone over 50 – you don’t need to worry about skin types or concerns. If you have someone to gift to who is under 50 look at the Defend Beauty Sleep Collection which is ideal for those in their 30s or 40s. But be quick – I think these sets will run out!” - Tamsin, CEO 

    Katie, ARK Skincare's Director shares her top picks from ARK's black Friday sale

    This Black Friday I'll be stocking up on the Triple Action Exfoliator and the Hydration Injection Masque - these are my ride or die products! I use them once or twice a week and they always deliver a noticeable skin pick-me up, leaving me with a plumper, more radiant complexion. I also use these products once a week on my hands for a really indulgent home manicure. The exfoliator is great for smoothing rough cuticles, and the masque has saved my dry hands! - Katie, Director

    Lucy, ARK Skincare's Sales and Marketing Co-Ordinator shares her top picks from ARK's black Friday sale

     “Since starting with ARK earlier this year, I have learnt so much about the importance of a proper cleansing routine. Before, I was definitely guilty of using an excessive amount of wipes or cotton pads to remove make-up but ever since using ARK’s Pre-Cleanse & Make-Up Remover, I’ve found it so much easier. By simply massaging the oil into dry skin and rinsing with water, it melts make-up away so easily and saves me so much time.

    I also adore our Hydrating Serum which always feels like such a treat for my skin. I find it really reassuring to know I'm using products which contain high-quality natural ingredients that I know will benefit my skin long-term. I’ve not used anything else since and would definitely recommend taking a look!” - Lucy, Sales & Marketing Co-ordinator

    Rosie, ARK Skincare's Sales and Office Administrator shares her top picks from ARK's black Friday sale

    “I am new to the ARK team and have loved trying my Age Intelligent range, I definitely underestimated the benefits from a regular skincare routine. In the short time I have used the AgeDefend range, I have noticed my skin feels softer and looks brighter.

    This Black Friday I am really looking forward to treating myself and trying our De-Stress serum. I often experience flare-ups where my skin can be red, sore, and extra sensitive around my T-zone, and think this will really help“ - Rosie, Office & Sales Administrator

    Kate, ARK Skincare's resident therapist shares her top picks from ARK's black Friday sale

    “I’ve been using ARK both on my clients and myself for just over 4 years. It’s hard for me to pick a favourite as I love so many of them! But my absolute must have is the Radiance serum, I would literally bathe in it if I could! 

    It really does do as the name suggests, my skin looks instantly brighter, it soothes, hydrates and has definitely made my hyperpigmentation less visible. This is my go to product to brighten & illuminate my skin." -  Kate, ARK’s Resident Therapist
